About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Monday, October 3, 2022.

Get inspired to use singing in caregiving! Research has found that singing while caregiving acts as an effective communication tool for those who can no longer follow verbal instructions easily. Singing also has positive effects for the caregiver, by releasing "feel good" chemicals in the brain and rekindling meaningful connection with their loved one. Please join us! This class will help remind, encourage and build your confidence to use singing in your caregiving. Benefits are immediate and accumulative. No music experience needed!
